Byung-tae, a rather timid, quiet guy, is rejected by Mi-ran and sets off on a whaling ship in an attempt to escape the shame and hurt. He helps a drunk woman he meets on the street, but is framed for something he never committed. He meets vagabond Min-woo and decides to leave with him, fascinated by his care-free spirt. Min-woo and Byung-tae meet Chun-ja on their journey and promise to find her lost speech and return to their hometown.
